Week 44

Now that I am serving in an English branch, sometimes I felt like I just can't speak the way I used to and couldn't think of the words that I want to use. Now that's what happen after speaking Malay for more than 7 months. 

Right here in Butterworth, the branch was organized back in 2009 so it is still fairly new I guess. And since they put me and Elder Hill into this area. We have to start all over again. A week ago, my investigators pool was pretty much just 2 people I guess? I am looking to expand my investigator pool and right now it's more than 10 people. But how many of the 10 will actually commit to whatever we teach? Who knows? So, pretty much we need to find new investigators every single day to replace those who are not potential enough. 

I noticed that ever since I came out and after learning more and more for the past few months. I began to develop the habit of coming out with a long term solution instead of short term solution. The church has helped me to think in many different perspective and I guess that I have learn how to look from an eternal perspective rather than worldly perspective which I am really grateful for because it helps shape me more and more into a better person. Anyway, if you ask me anything about Apple right now, I really have no idea what they have right now and it's so frustrating sometimes when I don't know anything about something I love. Looking at the world right now, I think I'd missed out a lot of fun and don't even know what is on trend. It used to be Angry Bird and now it's Candy Crush. What on earth are all these things? I am really lost right now but its a good thing that I am able to take a break from the world keeping myself from all these things. Now, let's focus on building humility and patience in myself. 

A friend of mine emailed me few minutes ago asking if I am still planning to go back to Hawaii for school. I happily replied that I will be going back to Hawaii for school. He replied me that I have an awesome life. Now, let me remind each one of you that each of you have an awesome life. You gotta find it and work your way to get it. I found mine and I work my way to get it. I will have to admit that I have an awesome life but you have no idea how much I need to sacrifice and how much I need to work to get it. Do not be envy of others life. You have no idea what is the story behind their life. Always be positive and that's the key to an awesome life. Sorry if I might have offended some of you because this is not my intention. .

Nothing much about this area yet except for I am back in West Malaysia and is only 4 hours away from my house and Penang food is the best. 

Love
Elder Tan
